Welcome to LEIP Jax 

We have increased our focus to provide not just local Jacksonville economic and business data, but also business and economic data for the State of Florida, the United States and the world.

Local Economic Indicators Project (LEIP) is now a ONE-STOP SHOP for business and economic data for:

  • Business Leaders
  • Government Officials
  • University Faculty
  • and Students of all ages

Founded by Dr. Paul M. Mason, an economics professor at the University of North Florida, LEIP's main function is the collection of data from all over the Jacksonville area. These data allow us to analyze price changes in order to measure inflation, adjust unemployment rates for seasonality, report stock price changes, and produce an index of leading indicators; to facilitate comparing our local numbers with similar numbers nationwide.
